“POGO MOB” is a performance created by Emma-Cecilia Ajanki and Julia Giertz based on the concept of punk and DIY, “do-it-yourself”. Pogo Mob is not an attempt to recreate the aesthetics or soundscape of punk, but to elucidate what it means to “do-it-yourself”. It has echoes of the mosh pit, an extreme form of human contact where one’s identity is drowned out, leaving you both exhausted and exhilarated.
